I omitted the tech manager going into the stores, digging out a ball of string, cutting off a length and telling the guy to lace up his footwear with the string.
This company is listed in the FTSE top 75 btw!

We have an annual replacement of all of our kit, but, things like gloves, they replace new of for old/defective as often as needed.

We also accept that some of our staff get through their some stuff quicker than others eg: boots and replace them as necessary.

its take me a long time to get the powers to approve this, but now its in place its working really well.

When working on Track I tend to go throught 1 pair of boots every 6 Month's,
It's mostly due to uneven terrain ie, Ballast.

Main cause's for me were the stitching going on them or the sole breaking from the leather.
